The DOMVS Approach
We take pride in our service and we take pride in understanding the property market. We make it our business to constantly improve and find more effective ways of doing our job.
Our relationship with our clients is of the utmost importance, and we handle these relationships with absolute respect and discretion.
Dorset is the county in which we have chosen to make our homes, which means we may have dealt with the same property more than once and know how to use our abilities to help you achieve your goals.
Finally, we love what we do. We have a fantastic team and, between us, we have more years of experience than we’d care to count. Property is our niche, which means we automatically approach our business with passion and confidence.
Land and Development
Land is a key part of any development. Neil Greenway is a land and development project expert with an architecture background – a true all-rounder. He and his team enjoy a remarkable track record finding the “sweet spot” of a project. There’s no substitute for experience, and it’s a sought-after talent that sets DOMVS apart.
We specialise in:
- Land sales and acquisitions
- Development and re-development
- Single plots, greenfield and brownfield sites
- Conversions and refurbishments
- Independent advice at every stage
- Feasibility studies to establish site revenue and appraisals
Land Sourcing and Acquisition
Our multi-disciplined team can provide a professional opinion on every site in regard to acquisition/sale right through to the completed properties and their resale, being able to identify opportunities to create value from potential sites. We advise on acquisition and disposal, and can often comment on a diverse range of urban, rural and cross-over development sites, be they greenfield, brownfield or a mix of both.
Our team assists clients to find sites suitable for development. Our clients are investors, builders, developers and public companies and bodies alike. We offer the right skill-sets to achieve and, where able, to improve development opportunities. We introduce and work with architects to plan and master planning residential development opportunities.
Our expertise encompass:
- Identification of development opportunities
- Appraisal and viability studies
- Marketing advice and research
- Sale and acquisition of development land
- Structuring and funding acquisitions
- Options and other forms of promotional agreements

You will see us in both national and local advertisements. Websites are important, we know that. That’s why, in addition to our own website, domvs.co.uk, we appear on rightmove.co.uk, onthemarket.com, countrylife.co.uk, fineandcountry.com and, where relevant, horseandhound.com.
Equally, we do our homework and know that a high percentage of our buyers first saw their new home in a paper publication before checking it out on the internet. After all, if it didn’t work, we wouldn’t do it. Our London-based PR department regularly secures us editorial coverage in a range of high profile newspapers and magazines, and works hard at those all-important relationships. It means your property is in with a good chance of appearing in the bright lights of the national media. We’d be glad to show you our wealth of creative articles in national and local press.
Then, there is the all-important social media. Times move on and we move with them, on Facebook, Twitter and our YouTube channel.
As a multi-disciplinary team, we offer a joined-up service by working with our colleagues in planning. In short, we can bring together the right expertise to best suit your needs.
DOMVS’ land and residential teams come together to deal with the sale and marketing of new-build homes and residential development sites. We work with a comprehensive range of national, regional and local house builders, using the strength of our brand, our experience and our specialist knowledge to support your marketing activities.
We can provide support for independent developers. From a site of one house to a mixed development of 67 new homes and a scheme of 70+ residential units in a rural setting, we offer a wide range of expertise to every client benefiting from our individual attention. Whether purchasing a new site, launching a new development or revitalising stagnant sales, we can provide that extra support by:
- Market appraisals, including anticipated sales prices and rates
- Marketing strategy proposals
- National and regional multimedia advertising campaigns
- Sales and management support
- Direct access to online property portals
